The exciting adrenalin rush tour took me down to wave 6 feet tall thrilling rapids category IV through the untamed part of Padas River claimed to be the best in South East Asia. The adventure covers a distance of 9km of muddy 200km Padas River that hold 7 exciting & nasty rapids with amusing name such as Merry-go-round rapid, Break Point rapid, Scooby Doo rapid, Cobra rapid, Curve rapid, Lambada rapid & Head Hunter rapid! (Murut people famously known as the "Head Hunter")   The journey first took about 1:30 hours travel from Kota Kinabalu to Beaufort Town.

This is recovery run after I ran a marathon on the previous weekend. Started from Stadium Kelana Jaya at 3am (yeah, we are crazy people who didn't sleep to run a race) heading to Subang Airport then to Ara Damasara before going back to the finish line at stadium. I clocked the fastest 10km (52min), I reached 15km mark in 1:27 hrs. At this point sub 2hr seems possible but I was bonked from 18km onward. Dang! Anyway, I still did my PB for half marathon in 2:15hr. A PB while doing a recovery run??? Unbelievable huh!

Completed my 15th marathon with PB... in Malaysia. I ran too fast in the first half. Sub 1 hour first 10km. I reached 15km mark in 1:29hr and 20km mark in 2:05hr.... but 2nd half... PANCIT!!!
However, I managed to clock PB in Malaysia 5:12hr. Yahooo! I think this is the race if you want to clock PB other than Penang Bridge Marathon.
